Hey Shacknews, it's time for Evening Reading. Let's officially close out our day of posting. Please take a look.
The State of the Union is not strong, u guise
Trump dissed Nancy. He is probably upset about being impeached for being a totally corrupt president.
Classy president doing classy things while he spits lies into the crowd. Oh yeah, Rush Limbaugh was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom, because this is the darkest timeline.

Twitter was a mistake

People are so skeptical of things they see on the Internet that they don't even use common sense. They just react.

GimR explains what "good" means in Smash Ultimate
I made a tweet yesterday saying Byleth is good. Not a single person asked me what I meant by "good". This is the issue with Twitter. No one cares about context, they just want to shout past you. To me, the upper part of mid tier is still good. It's just the top tiers are INSANE.— GimR @ #Glitch8 (@VGBC_GimR) February 4, 2020
I asked VGBC's GimR to explain what he meant in the context of Smash Ultimate:
A good character's strengths generally outweigh their weaknesses. Not necessarily solo-viable but close to it. Ultimate has a lot of good characters. It's just that the top 10 to 15 are leagues above the rest
Ah, so that means Kirby is still the best right??!! 😉 pic.twitter.com/O6KULdxjSG
